The audgen and audcntl routines exist on Tru64 UNIX, but not on HP-UX. However, replacement technology exists in audwrite and audctl.

The audgen routine generates an audit record. The audcntl routine provides audit control.

Solution description

Change calls in application code.

The auditing system is different in HP-UX and Tru64 UNIX. Therefore, audwrite and audctl are not direct replacements for audgen and audcntl. You must review your code, applicable manpages, and documentation to determine how to modify your application to use the auditing system in HP-UX.
